Erm, erm, erm, erm, erm...talent. Share, please? I'm going to throw you what I believe to be the ultimate compliment here (and I hope she won't mind me saying this): this was Gubby-worthy. It was absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous, if that even makes sense for a horror fic...

We all know from my moaning of late that I'm going through a reading/reviewing/writing block so this is probably going to be pretty short and sweet.

It was chilling - shiverworthy chilling. I couldn't take my eyes off the page. It was paced brilliantly, pulling and slowing and quickening just at the right moment. The flow was gorgeous; in a way, it matched the plot of the story so the parallels between that and the physical writing were really strong and vivid.

Vivid. Very good word, actually. There was certainly a fairytale-esque side to it, the prose and the setting and the description all came alive in my head. I could see each character before me, in spite of how little it seemed you actually described them. I adore it when that happens.

As we just established, I'm with you in being awful at analysing vague fics so I'll leave that to the experts rather than rambling on even more. I absolutely adored this. I knew you could do it (and anything you turned your hand to) and I feel I ought to be a shade of envy green at the minute but I think I loved it too much to even be selfishly jealous of you.

It was wonderful.

Author's Response: RACHEL! that really is the ultimate compliment (I am sure she doesn't mind being used as a standard. The Gubby-Standard, heee) And please, don't even kid yourself; this review is hardly short (but plenty sweet ♥)

And eee! You like it! I had no idea whether it was good or bad until suddenly all these people popped out of nowhere to read my first horror. I was thinking to myself, 'Oh these fragments sound pretty good, but does it even make sense when it's all put together?!' and I was constantly teetering between 'Is this -good- repetition or just plain repetitive?'

I had my handy book of fairy-tales beside me to inspire the language 8D The language is actually quite concise, which makes me happy.

And baww ♥ I'll force myself to do anything once I set myself on it, really. It had been a lot of anguish (as witnessed by Jack and Annie) just to get through so few words, but I had figured I should at least see my first horror attempt through. And I don't regret it in the least :D Huzzah!

(and there is nothing to be jealous of you part-of-my-inspiration-pool youuu)
